Police Officer Does Goes On A 911 Call That Changed His Life + This Little Boy’s Forever [PICTURES]
Officer Gaetano Acerra responded to a 911 call in South Carolina from a 13-year-old boy threatening to run away from home.
He found out it was what you would expect — boy was getting yelled at by mom, and, in emotion, he just wanted to run away. After he pursuaded him to stay home, he was taken by the young boy into the house, and when Acerra asked to go see him room, he was shocked.
According to ABC:
He was shocked at what he saw. Cameron’s bedroom was totally empty, save for a black garbage bag full of clothes. Just four walls, two windows and hardwood floor, according to Acerra.
When Acerra asked Cameron where he slept, he said, ‘Sometime on the couch and sometimes on a blow-up mattress.’
It got him thinking, and over the next few weeks, Acerra and his brother gathered things to bring over to the family, including a new bed, TV, desk, chair and even a barely-used Wii game system.
After his brother posted the picture about it on Facebook, people all over the world want to help. Acerra said that the boy cried and cried in happiness.
“I didn’t expect this, and I’m not one to gloat or brag or even ask for help, but with all these people standing behind us, we can change a lot of lives,” said Acerra.
Sometimes police officers get a bad rap. This guy proved right there that they’re not so bad — in fact, he proves that people in the world aren’t all that bad either. He even brought out the best in hundreds of thousands of other supporters.
